I really didn’t want to watch this trailer for Game of Thrones, but I wasn’t strong enough. Damn you HBO for making us wait longer this year.
I should also say thanks HBO for giving Game of Thrones the money and time it needs to be the most it can be. When others would rather find ways to cut budgets on big shows like this one, HBO is obviously sparing no expenses when it comes to Game of Thrones.
But let’s talk about the actual trailer, and specifically something Sansa says at the end: “When the snows fall and the white winds blow, the lone wolf dies, but the pack survives“. I heard all sorts of theories about what that might mean, personally I’m pretty sure all she’s saying is that we’re only going to survive the winter (and the big bad undead army coming their way) if they stick together, and that means everyone, even mortal enemies. Of course I don’t expect Cersei will be part of that alliance since I have a feeling she might be dead (or at least a prisoner) by the end of season 7. This season is when alliances are made (and Daenerys takes over King’s Landing) and probably season 8 will give us the big fight against the White Walkers and their army. Or so I hope, I’d rather them not kill Jon Snow again.
Season 7 of Game of Thrones starts July 16th with the first of just 7 episodes we’re getting this year. On the bright side rumor has it the last two will also be the longest episodes we’ve gotten so far, with 7 being about 81 minutes. For season 8, which will only be 6 episodes, we might have to wait even longer, late 2018 or possibly even early 2019.
